Handsome Lake Generating Station

Handsome Lake Generating Station is owned and operated by Exelon Power, a business unit of Exelon Generation. Handsome Lake is a five unit, 268 megawatt (MW) fossil power plant located in Rockland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania.

The units at Handsome Lake are fueled by natural gas and are used as needed for peak demand periods.  Handsome Lake joined Exelon Power’s fleet in 2012 as part of Exelon’s merger with Constellation.

Emergency Planning

All Exelon facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. These plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and regulatory agencies. The emergency planning includes coordination with local counties, municipalities and school districts.

Supporting the Local Economy

Handsome Lake pays local real estate taxes every year to support county and township government, area schools, libraries, park districts and other taxing bodies.
